fiilo is a minimalist, contemporary lifestyle brand - producing uniquely crafted environmentally conscious products using the latest 3D printing technology.
The initial idea for fillo began in 2015 whilst I was attempting to develop a hydroponics system that could screw into a standard plastic bottle to grow herbs. In order to speed up the prototyping phase I began using 3D printers. I later purchased one and began to create various 3D designed planters to house cacti and succulents to pay off the 3D printer. I sourced recycled filament from social enterprise in India which paid locals to collect plastics to recycle into 3D printing filament.
The vision was to provide affordable, yet well designed products that don’t have a negative effect on the environment.
Each products was made using 100% biodegradable PLA filament. PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic, which is derived from renewable resources, such as cornstarch. This makes PLA the most environmentally friendly solution in the domain of 3D printing.
fiilo was acquired in 2016 by an American buyer.
